The Ogun judges were sworn in on Wednesday.

The Ogun State Government on Wednesday swore in 48 newly appointed Customary Court Judges.

The State Government said it is part of the measures it is taking to ensure quick dispensation of justice in the state.

Performing the swearing-in ceremony at the conference Hall of the High Court Complex Isabo in Abeokuta, the State Chief Judge, Olatokunbo Olopade, advised the new appointees to acquaint themselves with the provisions of the customary court laws and other statutes in order to promote judicial services in the State.

Ms. Olopade said that the Judiciary in the State has zero tolerance for corruption and all other acts of indiscipline, admonishing them to be above board in the discharge of their duties at all times.

She charged them to ensure that cases brought before them are quickly dispensed with, but done painstakingly and without fear or favour, affection or ill-will.

Responding on behalf of the Customary Court Judges, Helen Majekodunmi expressed appreciation to the State Government for the opportunity given them to serve and promised not to engage in any act that could bring the judiciary into disrepute.
